Coronavirus Appeal – Please help!
Published on 20 March 2020 05:57 PM
The coronavirus outbreak means that more older people need our services and they need them more desperately.
Right now in excess of 200,000 older people in Birmingham and Sandwell are affected by the self-isolation measures the Government has advised. They are frightened of the health risks associated with the virus. They are scared that they won’t get enough food from the shops.
We can never allow a single elderly person to go hungry during this crisis - that’s something we can call agree on. So, at Age UK Birmingham and Age UK Sandwell we are determined to be there for older people who need our help, and especially those with no-one else to turn to. We are providing a really vital lifeline, but we desperately need your help too.
Age UK Birmingham and Age UK Sandwell are creating a lifeline for those most at risk in our City and Borough.

We are also looking for volunteers to bolster our numbers – many of our current volunteers are older people who now also need support.
Help us with your time.
Older people in Birmingham and Sandwell need help today.

If we find that the needs of older people change during this emergency or we raise more than £10,000, we will apply any money raised to where the needs are greatest.
Although it is our aim to raise at least £10,000, if this target cannot be met the funds raised during this emergency appeal will still be used to scale up our efforts to respond to this crisis.
